Cafeteria Juice Bar Proposal idea: To set up portable juice bars on school campuses, offering healthy fruit and vegetable drinks, along with some healthy snacks. These juice bars would not sell commercially packaged fruit drinks because these contain a high amount of sugar. Instead, they will offer freshly squeezed juices. Freshly squeezed juices are healthy for the body and contain a lot of the essential vitamins and minerals that the body requires. " Fresh juices are a tremendous source of enzymes. In fact, the freshness of juice is one of their key features since enzymes are destroyed by heat. When fruits and vegetables are juiced raw the enzymes are still viable when you drink the juice. Another benefit of drinking fresh juices is that your body can absorb more of the vitamins and minerals than if you were to eat the fruits whole! Many of the nutrients are trapped in the fiber and by juicing fruits; you break down the fiber and release the vital nutrients." (Soyquick) It is very important that students learn about the benefits of a healthy life style at a young age. The habits that a student learns early in life will remain with them throughout their life. A healthy juice and snack bar would be an excellent way to encourage students into getting into the habit of healthy eating and healthy drinking. Besides having fresh squeezed juice at the juice and snack bar, there would also be a wide variety of healthy snacks to choose from. The snacks will include fresh fruits such as bananas, apples, mangos, grapes, and peaches. Granola and fruit and fiber bars, whole grain cereals, different salads, various yogurts, and many types of organic vegetable sticks, potato chips, nacho chips, and dips. These foods will be high in vitamins and minerals and low in calories and fat. They will be highly nutritious and delicious. In addition to encouraging healthy eating habits, by incorporating a healthy food and drink bar in the school cafeteria, it will also lower the risk of diseases such as the flu or other colds and more serious illnesses such as high blood pressure, cancer, and other life altering or life threatening disease. Today, there are many studies that show that some illnesses are linked to poor eating habits. These eating habits had to have started at an early age if they contributed to a disease such as high blood pressure or cancer. So, by opening this healthy food and drink bar in the school's cafeteria, the risk of developing a disease later in life can be reduced. "Eating 5 or more servings of colorful fruits and vegetables a day is part of an important plan for healthier living. That is because deeply hued provide the wide range of vitamins, minerals, fibers, and photochemicals that the body needs to maintain good health and energy levels, protects against the effects of aging, and reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease." (5 a Day the Color Way). The way the healthy food and drink bar will be incorporated into the school cafeteria will be through the use of a space designated for the bar. The space will be leased free of charge to a specific company who will come in and provide the types of foods and drinks listed above. In exchange for free space rental, the school will ask to keep approximately 30% of the profits. This 30% will be used to fund a restaurant management program for students to learn about how to operate and manage a restaurant. In addition to the new healthy food bar, the school will also begin a "foods program" that will include courses in restaurant management, culinary arts, basic cooking, and healthy eating. Students will be able to take a series of courses within a specific program and be trained to work out in the real world. The students in the programs will have the opportunities to work and operate within the healthy food bar. This will provide them with the necessary hands on experience that will make them successful in the real world. A survey was recently conducted throughout the school and appropriately 60% of the students at the school stated that they would either be interested in enrolling in one of the "foods" programs or at least take a few classes as electives. So, this program will be a popular choice for students in the high school and it will provide them with hands on training and an opportunity to learn more about the benefits of healthy eating and healthy life styles. The products that will be available at the healthy foods and drink bar will be safe. All products will be within dietary guidelines and will be approved by the Food and Drug Administration. There will be no article flavorings or colors used in any of the foods. No dietary supplements will be made available at any time. No stimulate drinks that promote energy or strength will be sold and absolutely no drinks or snacks that are high in sugars and fats will be sold to the students. The food and drinks will all be 100% natural and nothing will be artificial. To help support this project, a nutritional advisory board will be established. This will consist of parents, students and school staff. We would also like at least one health professional to be part of this board as well. The board will meet once a month to discuss things such as the menu selections, the marketing and advertising, the "foods" program, and more. All decisions about the healthy foods and drink bar will have to be approved by this board. Finally, the program will promote local farmers and specialty food preparers. All products will be purchased from local farms or special food stores. The vendors will always be welcomed to stop by and try the products and talk to the students in the "foods" program. By purchasing the foods and drinks from local farmers and merchants, we will be giving something back to the society and in turn, we will be positively presenting our school in the community. In conclusion, this is a proposal to start a new healthy foods and juice bar in the local high school cafeteria. This is an essential addition that will encourage and promote healthy eating at a young age and will give students an opportunity to learn a trade in the "foods" program or to simply learn about different aspects of the world of healthy eating and healthy living. The students at the high school level are very excited about this program and support it 100%. Not only will it be a positive thing for the students, it will also showcase and support local farmers and specialty stores. Therefore, we present this proposal to you for your consideration.

...Nutrition Drive- Juice What is Nutrition Drive? Ask a captain or a person who regularly spends his/her evening on a sports field/court, you’ll certainly hear the problem of the not-so-nutritious diet made available to them in their hall mess & canteen. Our campus provides quality food at hostel level, no doubt. But those people who follow a rigorous routine of workouts, gym, road-running, weekly matches, this mess food doesn’t guarantee the total nutrition that should be. Nutrition drive is being initiated with this motive only. The Games & Sports Council wants every deserving player of its contingent to get the maximum benefit. How to begin? Every 6 days a week, from 8 30 to 9 30pm a juice stall would be booked in front of hall 3, specifically for sports people. The stall owner would be given a list of captain’s & vice-captain’s name on it. Students who are regular in practice and have attended the practice session on that day can avail this facility, this would be done under the supervision of the captain or the vice-captain, one of them has to be present along with them. Every sport that our campus students play has a different strength than the other. To account for this, number of students who can benefit from this activity would be limited & the thing most important to this, only regular students can utilize this opportunity. There can be 3 different types of Juices that can be provided, namely pineapple, orange & any other seasonal......

Strange Juice

...Sproglig analyse af ”Strange Juice” Historien er fortalt af Latasha Harlins, som bliver skudt. Det første karakteristiske ved teksten, er de forholdsvis korte realistiske sætninger. Disse minimale sætninger giver et indtryk af talesprog, hvilket også er tilfældet i denne historie. De korte sætninger er dog meget lige på og vi har derfor nemt ved at fælge fortællerens tanker. Samtidig er sproget dog meget barskt, f.eks.: ”She grabbed me. Bitch! I hit that hoe upside her jaw.” Som vi kan se bliver der både brugt bandeord og meget korte sætninger. Dette giver for det første et godt indtryk af fortælleren. Hun optræder som en barsk pige, opvokset i et ghetto miljø og mangel på opdragelse. Flere eksempler på bandeord er: ”chink ass hoe”, ”gives a fuck” osv. Det morderne sprog er dog meget præget af bandeord som disse og det viser os, at fortællingen er fra nyere tid. Selvom teksten er minimal og meget hverdagspræget, finder man stadig længere beskrivelser, hovedsagligt i starten og slutningen af teksten, f.eks.: ”And the sky was red-brown gauze. You could see patches of blue if you look up but i don´t hardly ever look up”. Som vi kan læse bliver himlen beskrevet med flere adjektiver og det samme sker i slutningen af historien f.eks., ”I see the collard greens again only now they´re growing likebig trees, then i see a red dirt road in the middle of the salad bar(……)”. Som vi kan se bliver de ting hun ser velbeskrevet og der bliver brugt lidt billedsprog. Når der bliver...

We are confident that our advertising ideas will put some mojo into the way consumers see your juice products. 2 INTRODUCTION Executive Summary Naked Juice presents an affordable and unique way for consumers to maintain healthy eating habits in an on-the-go environment. The brand has relied on its healthy share of the market along the West Coast since its inception in 1983 and has recently become the sales leader. However, Naked Juice does not enjoy the same market share nationally. As Naked Juice looks to maintain its position as a sales leader, MoJo Media has designed a comprehensive plan to raise awareness among markets in the Northeast, Midwest, and Mid-Atlantic regions of the country. Our campaign goals are to raise product awareness and increase sales among 18-24 year-old females in these regions. Our advertising efforts will emphasize the all natural ingredients in the juice as well as the one pound of fruit in each bottle. By promoting what makes Naked Juice unique from its competitors, MoJo Media is confident that this campaign will be a success. 3 INTRODUCTION Objectives MoJo Media has designed a campaign to create awareness and stimulate sales of Naked Juice in the Northeast, Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions of the country.

Bar Layout

...Arevalo, Alonica Michelle M. NT1-O BAR LAYOUT A lot needs to be considered when designing a new bar or laying out an existing bar. The truth is most of the bars in the world are poorly designed with little practical value to the bartenders that serve behind a bar, many are designed by architects who have never actually worked behind a Bar. You may have a magnificent looking bar that is ornately beautiful but if it takes forever to make drinks & its poor design effects customer service then it may be an expensive disappointing failure. The key of a practical bar is accessibility. If the bartender is required to take more than 3 steps to get anything then odds are the design is poor. It is also a major OH&S risk to a bars staff if they are constantly forced to walk behind other staff to get ingredients. The first stage when designing a bar or laying out an existing bar is working out what needs to go together, by together I mean without taking more than 1 step. * Beer Taps & Beer Glass's * Cocktail Equipment, Cocktail Glass's, Cocktail garnishes, Ice well, Liquor, soft drink gun & Sink * Ice well, Sprits, Speed well, straws coasters, napkins, soft drink gun & sprite glasses * Wine & Wine Glass's * Bar top & cleaning cloths * It all seems pretty simple but actually achieving this can be tricky and requires lots of planning.

...Behaviorally Anchored Rating Scales (BARS) Behaviorally Anchored Rating Scales(BARS) BARS refers to Behaviorally Anchored Rating Scales. It was developed by Smith and Kendall to provide a better method of rating employees. It differs from "standard" rating scales in one central respect, in that it focuses on behaviors that are determined to be important for completing a job task or doing the job properly, rather than looking at more general employee characteristics (e.g. personality, vague work habits). Behaviorally Anchored Rating Scales (BARS) are designed to bring the benefits of both qualitative and quantitative data to the employee appraisal process. BARS compare an individual’s performance against specific examples of behavior that are anchored to numerical ratings. For example, a level four rating for a nurse may require them to show sympathy to patients while a level six rating may require them to show higher levels of empathy and ensure this comes across in all dealings with the patient. There are different ways in effectively structuring a BARS system. They are 1. Identification of Critical Incidents: This step involves supervisors and other in authority identifying specific incidents of effective and unsatisfactory behavior. These incidents should be related to the job performance. 2. Selection of performance dimensions: These incidents are further dissected into performance dimensions. An average of 5 to 7 performance dimensions is ideal. This......

Boost Juice

...Case Study: BOOST Juice While a prime reason for choosing any drink is to quench one’s thirst, it is when consumers continually demand a particular brand that marketers know they have done their job well. There are many ways in which we san slake our thirst, and large amounts of money are spent on positioning branded drinks in various categories – such as those competing in carbonated beverages, water and milk drink sectors – not to mention the sums spent on convincing us that we need to drink more of that type of drink. You might think there is very little room left to grow the market, or feel that the industry is overcrowded. After all, Australasia isn’t North America, which has almost ten times the local population. California alone has the same population as Australasia. Nevertheless, while there have been failures, juice bars targeting the health-conscious have sprung up in many different locations, particularly in shopping malls. A big player in this market, Boost Juice, was founded by Melbourne-born Janine Allis in 2000. It experienced 257% growth in 2003/04 and by then had 100 stores and a turnover of nearly $20 million. By 2007 there were 180 stores throughout Australia, with three in Chile, two in Indonesia, and one each in Kuwait, Singapore and Dubai, and turnover had risen to over $90 million.
